"MLK day ON not day off" event co-sponsored by my school district and our city. There were many community (both local and far away) organizations set up with hands on projects. We decorated dog dishes for the Humane Society, made bookmarks for Literacy, toiletry bags for the local homeless shelter, letters for Veterans of WWII, and a program called "Reach for Change" which is helping Darfur. It was a wonderful experience and my 10yo "in the stripes" told me he really enjoyed participating for this event. We both walked away with a great feeling about volunteering!
I am currently the Library Aide in an Elementary School for 6 years prior I was the Technology Facilitator for middle school teachers and students. I LOVE learning new technology in the eduverse! I'm a single mom of a 9 year-old boy. I LOVE tech but being a mom is the BEST job in the world!
